Bobby Grant returns to Reds

Coleman: 'He will run through brick walls for us.'

31 January 2020

Accrington Stanley have signed former player Bobby Grant on loan from National League side Wrexham until the end of the season.

The left winger, now 29, came through the ranks with the Reds and became the second youngest player to appear in the EFL for Stanley, at 16 years and 309 days, in the final game of the 2006/7 season at MK Dons.

He started playing regularly for Stanley in the 2009/10 season and his performances caught the attention of then Championship side Scunthorpe who signed him in June 2010 for around £250,000.

He returned to the Reds for a brief loan spell in 2012 before a switch to Rochdale, when John Coleman was manager there, before moves to Blackpool, Fleetwood, Shrewsbury and then back to Highbury.

He joined Wrexham on loan in 2018 before a permanent deal in January 2019 as Wrexham finished fourth before losing in the Play-Offs.

He has scored seven league goals this season, with the Welsh side in 17th place.

“We know what Bobby is all about, we know what we are getting with him and we know he will work his socks off for us to help us win games and keep us in League One,” said manager Coleman.

“He knows how me and Jimmy (Bell) operate and he will be prepared to run through brick walls for us.”

The move is subject to international clearance and Grant will not be available for tomorrow’s home game against AFC Wimbledon.
